Stress on a Chinese elm

Zone 85042 | Tricias added on April 19, 2018 | Answered

My Chinese 3 year old elm was picked on by my goats. Specifically, they ate the majority of the main trunk bark and pulled to slant to about a third to the side. I have tree wrapped the trunk and straightenrd/re braced the tree. Is there something I should use to prevent shock?

Can you include a photo? It sounds like you are doing what you should be doing, but if the wound is small enough, there might be a few things you can do to help it recover. If it is too major, it will just have to stand the test of time. Sometimes they can recover, and sometimes they cannot. A picture will help me to determine the best course of action.
